In view of population growth, climate change, and increasing water demand, the business of putting wastewater to beneficial reuse is on the rise, globally. Reclaimed wastewater presents an opportunity to bridge the gap between water supply and demand, while providing substantial benefits for water conservation, environmental protection, and economic development.

When building a reuse scheme, utilities must weigh a multitude of factors, including rationale, policy framework, technical feasibility, off-taker profiles, and economics. These factors can vary significantly from project to project and ultimately underpin the utility’s chosen reuse strategy, including its approach to commercialization.

Bluefield’s team of water experts has analyzed the business models of select reuse projects in the U.S., Europe, and Asia-Pacific, investigating how strategic decisions are tied to the enabling environment (i.e., the policy landscape, effluent supply availability, off-taker demand profiles, water quality requirements, financing options, value generation, etc.). Bluefield was pleased to present a review of these case studies at the WaterReuse 2024 Symposium and offer perspective on commercialization strategies for wastewater reuse.
